Los Angles Police arrested a man Thursday night, a few hours after he allegedly burglarized Drake’s mansion.
Drake’s security team observed a man leaving the star’s home and noticed there was something unusual when he was spotted carrying something in his hand, according to TMZ. Law enforcement officials said Drake’s security representatives alerted police as soon as they realized the man had broken into the rapper’s home, but the suspect had already fled the scene by the time police arrived, according to TMZ.

Drake was reportedly not at home when the incident took place.
The identify of the suspect in custody and details surrounding the charges he’s facing have not been made public at this time.
This is not the rapper’s first encounter with an unwelcome visitor. A male trespasser was arrested for misdemeanor trespassing in July after the 23-year-old suspect attended the residence and claimed that Drake was his father, according to TMZ.
